Password editing is disabled because it uses your Mozdev CVS password.  You
can change/reset your CVS password here:

If you end up accidentally deleting your Drupal account it will be recreated
with the correct permissions; you can't uncheck your project owner/contributor
status on your Drupal user as these are synced with our permissions for each

You need to log in to Drupal with your Mozdev CVS user account and password;
if that's not working for you we need to get that working first.  I imagine
the "reset password" link is just giving your a temporary login which expires
with your session.
